Anniversary Card

I used Donna's Cut file from Custom Crops to create an Anniversary card for my in-laws. Thank you Donna for the cut file and the inspiration. Here is the link to Donna's Tutorial...


Here are the pictures of how I used her cut file. The entire card was created using the Sweethearts cartridge.

Dog's Rule Layout

This is one of my favorite layouts that I designed with my Pazzles machine. I think I will probably put this one on ebay and see how it goes. There are a ton of popdots in this layout and they don't seem to show up much in the pictures. The white dog was designed to look like our Bichon Daisy and the second dog was designed to look like my daughter's dog (Cocker Poo) Lucky. All cuts were vector drawn by me using Paint Shop Pro and imported to my Pazzles machine for cuting and piecing. It was a lot of fun to do this layout.

Blizzard Warning

On December 10, we were under a Blizzard warning through December 11. We only ended up getting about 10 inches of snow; but, the winds were so hard that the temp was -9. Yuck! County's north of us got a lot more of the lake effect snow than we did. I'm done with winter now and can't wait til spring. Gotta a long way to go - bummer! I do love the seasons in Michigan and really don't mind the snow if the ice stays off the roads. That is me in the snowsuit getting ready to clean up the snow. Cute huh? LOL!

For the layout, I used:
Paper from Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby
Lyrical Letters for the Title
Winter Woodland for the extra cuts (Used glitter paper but it does not show well in the photo)
And some Snowflakes and Gems that I had laying around

I Love Birds...

I love watching the birds at our feeders in the winter. As I was taking pictures of the birds at one feeder station, we ended up with a little theif at the second feeder station so I took pics of the little guy too. I just thought it would make a good layout. I used DCWV paper, the Winter Woodland Cartridge for the titles, Accent Essentials for the snowflakes and Stickles and pearls to embellish.

If Looks could kill....

Our Daisy is a Bichon who will be three in February. She should have grown a second coat of fur that should be course and thick. She never grew the second coat so her fur is very fine and silky. Due to this she needs to wear a coat in the coldest time of year here in Michigan. She absolutely hates the coat!!! When I took the pictures below I thought Whew - If looks could kill... Then she tried her hardest to tear the coat up. It is was funny watching her. The layout title and the daisy dog was done using my Pazzles Machine.

This is one of those layouts you really don't want anyone to see as I think it is one of the worst I have done... but, too lazy to redo it so posting it. I figure everyone has those layouts you just want to hide. Anyway... here is Daisy in her winter gear...

Nativity Album

I saw on the Cricut Message board blackbearblackbear's Nativity Album and decided to use the inspiration to make cards for two very close family members. I added Bible Verses instead of picture holders to make it more like a card. I used Paper Doll Dress Up for most of the cuts, my Pazzles for the titles and Accent essentials for the snowflakes. The paper was various Christmas papers and Gems & Stickles here and there.

Got Kids

I love this picture of my Son-in-law and my two grandchildren and decided to do a layout.

I used:
Cricut Graphically Speaking & Mini Monograms Cartridges for the cuts
Pebbles Ribbon
DCWV Stack Latte for cuts
Letter Press Sticko Style paper as background paper
Heidi Grace Epoxy Sticker - Hugs

Erica's Handiwork

My daughter and granddaughter are taking cake decorating classes. I won the From My Kitchen cart from the Christmas with the Cricut Blog and decided to use it to create a layout using a picture of Erica's first decorated cake. I love this cart and had fun doing this layout.

I used:
Lyrical Letters for the Title - There are no shadows for the letters so I tried to improvise by cutting twice with different paper and layering a bit.
Cricut From My Kitchen Cartridge for the Cuts
DCWV Kitchen Stack
DCWV Latte Stack
Scribbles Iredescent Golden Pearl for the Frosting in the Bowl
Misc items I found in my scraproom to decorate

In the Spirit...

It seems like forever since I have posted anything on my blog. I finally have had a bit of time to do some scrapping. I have so missed the crafting and am very happy to be getting back to it.

I put a few decorations out to get in the Spirit of Christmas and decided to take pictures and scrap them.

I used the Christmas Noel cart for the cuts.
The Title is from Winter Woodland
Paper is from the Pepperment Forest Stack from JoAnn's and DCWV Christmas Glitter Stack.

Peek A Boo Daisy

This layout is of our dog, Daisy, playing with her blanket.

I used Ashlyn's Alphabet and Cricut Paper for the title.
The Dog with the blanket was vector drawn by me using Paint Shop Pro and imported into my Pazzles program. I used Scribbles Iredescent Golden Pearl to make the edge of the blanket look a bit like fur.
The paper is from My Minds Eye - Where the Heart Is paper stack.
The flowers are Prima.

This layout is of my daughter's cat who is aptly named Fat Cat.

I used A child's year for the cat with the title.
The title was done with Cursive 101
The other cat and yarn were done with Paper Dolls for Everyday
Paper used was from DCWV Pet Stack and DCWV Textured Cardstock
